What Badass Women Save Themselves Is About

Blythe and Jove want you to know that badass women save themselves. They don’t need a man to do it for them. In fact, badass women often save men, children, and themselves, sometimes all at once.

We are connoisseurs of popular culture, and we love the badass women who take control of the big and small screens, as well as the radio and the page. In our podcast, we talk about the stuff we love, and sometimes the stuff we hate, and why we love or hate it. Since there’s enough negative in the world, though, we spend more time on love than hate.

Come hang out with us while we chat about compelling, strong, gorgeous women and their contributions to pop culture!

Who Should Listen

Badass Women Save Themselves is for any woman who has sighed at the sight of yet another Hollywood depiction of the helpless female and who celebrate the progressive, uplifting, exciting representations of women throughout TV, movies, music and literature as well. From Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson, The Fall) to Becca (Anna Kendrick, Pitch Perfect) to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones), we discuss the badass women who don’t need to be rescued—and who often rescue others.

Show Hosts

Both are co-owners of Dirt Road Books and published authors in their own right. Jove is also on the Women And Words podcast where she and Andi do a roundup of the week’s happenings on their website.

Jove Belle…

…likes badass women, words that start with the letter “M,” and weather that allows her to ride her bike. She dislikes imbalance of power, sports analogies as a motivational tool, and bleu cheese. That stuff is just nasty.

When she’s not running amok on the internet, she writes books. Or she edits books.

You can learn ALL about her if you head over to Jove’s personal WEBSITE. Go ahead. Click the link. You know you want to.

Blythe Rippon…

…likes badass women, animals that shed, and music she can sing to. Dislikes include xenophobia, passive aggression, and grapefruit. She teaches during the day and dances in the evenings, mostly in the kitchen, usually with her toddlers and wife. Sometimes all by herself, though. Evidently her dance moves make people laugh so hard they can no longer dance themselves. She’s never sure if this is a compliment, and no one seems interested in clarifying for her.

You can learn a FEW things about her from Blythe’s WEBSITE. She’s not as website-savvy as Jove.

What Sheena Loves

I love that they do top 5 lists where they each have 5. It’s like you get two for the price of one.

I love the variety in the show with episodes ranging from The Top 5 Fictional Women To Take To A Deserted Island to fangirling over Fried Green Tomatoes.

I love the interplay between the two hosts and what’s not to love about strong female characters?

Great Episode To Get You Started
